Info & Setlist | Venue

First of two shows, double bill, with the nine-piece Bruce Springsteen Band headlining and Sunny Jim opening. The Band consists of core members Springsteen, Van Zandt, Tallent, Lopez, and Sancious, plus (on selected songs) Harvey Cherlin (trumpet), Bobby Feigenbaum (saxophone), Delores Holmes (vocals), and Barbara Dinkins (vocals). Unsurprisingly, the set structure is similar to the show a week earlier at Damrosch Park in New York City, opening with "C.C Rider" before "You Mean So Much To Me", which interestingly Bruce introduces with the title "When She Sings To Me". "Natural Magic" was, at the time, probably Bruce's finest love song. Uncirculating soundboard tape features the only known recording of "Full Of Love", a song that was previously known from a handwritten setlist document which is believed to emanate from a gig at this venue. While the chorus is actually sung "I thank the Lord above / for sending me a woman that is filled with so much love", it seems highly likely that they are the same song. The instrumental "Darkness, Darkness" clocks in at over 18 minutes, and contains elements that would later be found in "Kitty's Back". Delores Holmes provides the vocals on "I'm In Love Again" and "You Don't Leave Me No Choice", which once again features some outstanding guitar work from Springsteen.
